Smollett fallout continues: Dozens reportedly fired after accessing his hospital records

While I am nearly certain that hospital employees are given strict guidelines on accessing medical records, it's still right to say that hate crime hoaxes are not a victimless crime.

From CBS Chicago:
Dozens of workers at Northwestern Hospital may have been fired for improperly reviewing the medical records of Jussie Smollett, who was treated at the emergency room after he claimed he had been attacked by two men.

Sources say those workers have been terminated after gaining access to the "Empire" actor’s medical chart. Smollett has since been charged with staging the whole incident.

One of the nurses says it was a misunderstanding and claims she never even accessed Smollett's chart.

But she was fired last week and believes many other nurses and staffers were fired for the same reason.
